Sholing 2-1 Moneyfields

Dan Mason got both the goals, including a 91st minute winner as the Boatmen battled to a hard fought win in a game with 11 yellow cards.  Lee Wort set up Dan Mason on 10 mins to blast in a 20 yard piledriver for the opener and he went agonisingly close with a chip soon after.  Second half was more stop than start, with endless bookings, making the game scrappy & the first time Sholing switched off, Briggs equalised with a low shot in the 63 min.  Stu Green was unlucky with a back heel flick, but in the first minute of added time, a clear handball by a Money's player meant a penalty, which Dan Mason slotted in for a deserved 3 points - Match Report & Video

Sholing 2-4 Mangotsfield United

A second half horror show from the Boatmen saw them throw away a two goal lead in an embarrassing defeat.  Sholing were on top in the first half and went 2 up inside 17 minutes when first Stu Green volleyed in and then Brad Targett slotted home. After missing a great chance to be 3 up just after the restart, Sholing gifted the visitors a way back into the game with an underhit backpass which was seized upon. Then in the final 20 mins it all fell apart with Mangotsfield equalising and 7 mins later had turned it round to lead. They were even able to pass up the chance to waste time deep in stoppage time, to score an unchallenged 4th - Match Report

Winchester City 4-0 Sholing

A much changed Boatmen went out of the Southern League Cup at Winchester.  Two debuts were given to young Reserve players and Owen Royl captained the side for the first time. After Sholing missed a couple of good early chances, the home side scored via a deflection, before adding a well worked second soon after.  Winchester added two more well taken goals late on to give the scoreline a rather flattering look - Match Report

Basingstoke Town 1-6 Sholing

Dan Mason scored a hattrick and Lee Wort a wonder goal as the Boatmen recorded their first away league win of the season in some style D-Dan got the goal-fest underway after 8 mins, drilling in low through a crowd of players after being set up by Stu Green. Green then doubled the lead, tapping in from Brad Targett's cross on 11 mins. Home side got a goal back on 20 mins, with the Referee, seemingly the only person in the ground who thought a shot had crossed the line. On 27 mins, Dan Mason thumped in a great strike from 20 yards and then he was denied by the crossbar after some brilliant play by Green, who then set up the 4th, when Lee Wort tucked in at the far post. A highly eventful first half then saw a terrific penalty save by Ryan Gosney.  On 57 mins, Wort was hauled down for a penalty and Dan Mason dispatched it for his hat-trick.  The goal of the game, and probably the season then came on 61 mins as Lee Wort flicked the ball up and hit an overhead kick from the edge of the area that found the far corner! A stunning goal.  Boatmen could have scored 3 or 4 more, but will be very happy to finally get off the mark on our travels with a great performance - Match Report

Sholing 0-2 Thatcham Town

Boatmen started the new year with a defeat at the hands of the league leaders.  Thatcham scored straight from the kick off, with no Sholing player touching the ball by the time Tooze swept in a cross.  Our best chances came from corners, with Byron having a header cleared off the line, but we struggled throughout to work their keeper, with Thatcham strong in defence and quick up top. That was proven in the second half when they broke at pace, with Tooze set free on the left and he sped forward to slot under Gosney - Match Report & Photos
